“Many plans are in a person’s mind, but the Lord’s purpose will succeed.”
– Proverbs 19:21, CEB
College is a time filled with choices. What to major in, who to be friends with, how to get involved; it can be overwhelming. Some people already answered these questions, while others are still searching for answers. For both groups, this verse is one to keep in mind. To those still searching, remember that God’s plan always prevails, and you should look to him and the Scriptures to help find answers. If you already feel like your choices have been made, even if you believe they’re the right ones, don’t forget that sometimes the purpose we believe we have for ourselves is not the one God has in store for us.
God, help me discover the plans you have for me. Remind me that I am not alone at the crossroads of my life, and that your purpose will succeed.
